With a dedicated computer audio input the new McIntosh C50 preamplifier allows you to directly connect your Windows PC or Apple Mac to your McIntosh system using a simple USB connection. This allows you to play back the music from your Apple iTunes or Windows Media directly into your McIntosh system. Using Apple and iTunes, you can even pick and play your music from your iPhone!

The McIntosh C50 also has four high performance digital audio inputs so you can connect your cable tv, dvd player, or Airport Express/Sonos/Logitech to send music wirelessly to your McIntosh system.

Rounding out, the McIntosh C50 is also at its a heart a world class McIntosh high performance preamplifier with twin moving coil/moving magnet phono sections, a home theater bypass, and six line level stereo analog inputs. To adjust all of this to perfection the C50 also has a five band programmable equalizer.

The C50 has the same circuit as the C48, but also includes an eight band equalizer, a processor loop, and output level meters.

The C50 now supports 32-bit/192-kHz via its USB interface! This digital stage is truly remarkable and offers some of the finest digital sound we’ve heard at Pearl Audio Video.
